Interior

Space is maximised in the Holden Captiva, which comfortably accommodates up to seven people, depending on model. Fold flat seating transforms the vehicle from a family-friendly wagon to a versatile and adaptable load carrier.

In SX, CX and LX models, all passenger seats can be folded down to open up 1565 litres of cargo volume. It comes with practical items such as remote operated tailgate glass for quick access (SX, CX, LX), and more than 20 convenient storage solutions depending on model.

Stowaway features include a large wet/dry area beneath the load compartment floor, glovebox cooler, deep centre console bin, rear centre console storage and handy door bins all round.

There are drink bottle holders, small item/coin and cup holders, a parking ticket holder, overhead sunglasses compartment, seatback pockets and under-seat storage tray (Captiva 5). There are three 12-volt power outlets.

Captiva’s driver-orientated cockpit layouts are accented in subtle satin silver and integrated infotainment units feature CD players (six-disc all models except SX) and MP3 compatibility. Tinted windows, power-operated all round, cruise control, power mirrors and air conditioning with particle filter are standard. Captiva 5 has a unique instrument cluster and centre console stack, sporty contoured seating and leather-wrap three-spoke steering wheel.

Driver, front passenger and side curtain airbags are standard on all models except Captiva SX, where driver and front passenger airbags are standard and curtain airbags are optional. Further safety items include pyrotechnic front seat belt pre-tensioners and force limiters, sash height adjustable front seatbelts, pedal release system and three child restraint anchor fittings. A rigid, high-strength body shell is crash-optimised to distribute crash forces over defined load paths and help protect the integrity of the passenger safety cell.

Chassis

An extensive Australian development program ensured Holden engineers strongly influenced Captiva’s performance and ride and handling characteristics. The result is a refined ride that is comfortable and stable in varying local road conditions.

Captiva’s trim SUV proportions contribute to its feel and manoeuvrability in everyday driving situations. The power steering is tuned for handling response, precise road feel and optimum driver feedback.

All models a have four-link independent rear suspension and MacPherson strut up front. Suspension settings have been carefully calibrated to deliver passenger sedan ride refinement and the ability to absorb surface imperfections.

Captiva CX and LX are equipped with a level ride suspension system which automatically maintains nominal ride height under differing load conditions. To align the vehicle with its sporty character, Captiva 5 has unique damper calibrations and special rebound springs in the front struts for extra body roll control.

Electronic Stability Control  is included as standard on all models. ESC helps prevent skidding in critical driving situations by applying corrective braking and reducing engine torque.

An advanced Active Rollover Protection (ARP) system monitors body roll behaviour and averts possible rollover through early brake intervention. On steep downhill gradients, a Descent Control System (DCS) can automatically apply brakes at each wheel and allow the driver to concentrate primarily on steering.

Captiva is also equipped with four-channel ABS, traction control and hydraulic brake assist, which boosts pedal pressure when it detects emergency braking.

Active all-wheel-drive

The intelligent active all-wheel-drive system that contributes so much to Captiva’s versatile appeal is fully integrated into the ESC and ABS systems, improving vehicle control and active safety.

In normal conditions, drive is via the front wheels. When driving conditions dictate, the active all-wheel-drive system instantly employs the rear axle via an electronically controlled electro-magnetic coupling to deliver maximum traction.

Styling

Holden design played a central role in shaping the strikingly stylish Captiva SUV. Its dynamic proportion and visual cues reflect the influences of former Holden Design Director Mike Simcoe and former Holden colleague Max Wolff.

Captiva has a boldly contoured engine hood, large jewelled headlamps and eye-catching grille with the Holden lion featured prominently on the crossbar.

In profile, Captiva shows off rugged SUV elements such as bold wheel arches and protective mouldings, countered by chrome highlights and a coupe-style rear window treatment. The strong rear design is dominated by a large tailgate and substantial vertical tail lamps with indicators and reversing lamps contained in a central circular element.

Detailing such as fender vents, roof rails, skid and sill plates, integrated signal lamps in the side mirrors, fog lamps, 17- and 18-inch alloy wheel design varies according to model designation.

Captiva 5 has unique design elements that set it apart from the other Captiva models. The lower section of the vehicle looks robust and the body features bold lines and taut surfaces that combine to give a sporty muscular appearance with stylish elegance.
